TASK ERROR: storage ... does not exist

Hello, all. I recently created a cluster and one of the nodes that joined had a storage already configured. I can see its ZFS pool under the Storage section in that specific node but it no longer shows as a storage option along the left side Server View.

I tried a zfs import but no dice. What am I missing?
when joining a cluster, the new node inherits the cluster's storage configuration (it's shared across all nodes). If the storage is only available on the new node, you'll need to add the storage in Datacenter > Storage > Add and restrict it to that node. If a storage with the same configuration is already present, you need to change the node restriction to include the new node Datacenter > Storage > Edit
